If you're a fan of techno, one name that belongs on every fan's playlist is Gesaffelstein. Even if you're unfamiliar with the French DJ-producer, chances are you've been exposed to his music, as he has worked alongside some of the biggest and most-forward thinking artists in music. From aligning himself with Brodinski at Bromance Records, to producing tracks like “Send It Up” from Kanye West‘s Yeezus (2013) and “In Distress” with A$AP Rocky for the soundtrack of Divergent, he has been part of the best collaborations in the past few years.

He recently collaborated with French composer and producer Jean-Michel Jarre on the legendary artist's first original work since 2007, "Conquistador," which is now available exclusively on Beatport. At the 2015 Coachella Valley Music Festival, he performed his final Gesaffelstein LIVE show (which showcases Mike Levy’s (aka Gesaffelsetin) brilliant live mixing ability and dark, industrial-inspired techno sounds as the acclaimed French producer performs from his gold marble DJ booth).
